The purpose of this website is to provide revision notes for students preparing for the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma program in Geography. It is a collection of lecture notes and resources from several years of teaching geography at the IB Diploma level.
I would like to express my deepest appreciation to the authors of the textbooks and online sources I consulted, some of which may not have been duly referenced for compelling reasons. As you navigate the pages, it is my hope that you would acquire the requisite knowledge and skills for passing the final examination. Comments, contributions or suggestions for improvement are welcome.
